What Are Obama's Priorities?

I want to tell you about the Black Panther story from the beginning, because something is not right.

On Election Day in 2008, the New Black Panther Party had a national effort to send out its members to polling locations. They called the election an "emergency" situation. Two of those members were caught on tape at a polling location in Philadelphia, in full paramilitary uniform and reportedly brandishing a baton.

One of the Panthers, King Samir Shabazz, was reportedly harassing and intimidating voters and poll workers. This was supposed to be an open and shut case. Former President Bush starts the prosecution before the end of his term, but then President Obama comes in and decides suddenly, in May of 2009, to drop the case. A former Department of Justice official ends up resigning in protest over the case and testifies about it.

Bartel Bull, a civil rights lawyer in the 1960s and the former campaign manager for Robert Kennedy, said it was the "most blatant form of voter intimidation" he had ever seen. That's saying something — and this isn't some right-wing Republican shill. Bull also said the Black Panthers intimidated voters and tried to "interfere with the work of other poll observers," telling one that, "you are about to be ruled by the black man, cracker."

Then this video of one of the accused, King Samir Shabazz was uncovered:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

SAMIR SHABAZZ: I hate white people — all of them. Every last iota of a cracker — I hate him. Because we're still in this condition.

We didn't come out here to play today. There's too much serious business going on in the black community to be out here sliding through South Street with white, dirty, cracker whore (expletive) on our arms.

You want freedom? You're going to have to kill some crackers. You're going to have to kill some of their babies. Let us get our act together.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

The Obama Justice Department still maintains the case isn't supported by the facts. This racist I just showed you got less than a slap on the wrist. He is not allowed to go to any Philadelphia polling locations... until 2012. Gee, what's going on that year? Oh, and he can still go to polling locations in other towns.

New Black Panther leader Malik Shabazz mocked the outcome:

MALIK SHABAZZ, NEW BLACK PANTHER PARTY: King Samir can't go back to polling place until 2012 and I don't think he cares if he goes back to a polling place until 2012.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

Despite all this, there is no interest in the case — a case that shouldn't have been dropped in the first place. Let's look now at the priorities of this president:

The president took 93 days to respond to McChrystal's Afghanistan report

It took the president 57 days to meet with BP's CEO

It took two weeks for the president to make a formal statement on the Christmas Day bomber

477 days since undercover ACORN tapes surfaced, no official investigation

It was 47 days before the White House commented on our Van Jones immigration

Clearly, no rush with any of those decisions. So, what does the president care about?

After the Professor Gates incident, Obama told the nation two days later — admittedly without the facts — that the police "acted stupidly"

Arizona has been begging for border reinforcements for 454 days; it took the Obama administration 78 days to file their lawsuit

The Obama administration took 37 days to order a stop to drilling in the Gulf; after the court overturned the moratorium, it took them eight hours to re-file

Then you have the police shooting case in Oakland. 23-year-old Oscar Grant was being arrested and allegedly resisting when the officer says he tried to shoot him with his Taser. He claims he accidentally pulled his real gun by mistake. He was convicted of involuntary manslaughter.

Protests ensued and it didn't take long before looting and rioting broke out. Over 80 were arrested as windows were smashed, cars were burned and so on. Now, I'm sure there were plenty of legitimately angry, regular citizens there. But there were also lots of signs and groups there. Remember, this is San Francisco — home of Van Jones' STORM and the Ella Baker Center and all sorts of communist groups. They spread the word leading up to the verdict.

Anarchist News wrote: "We are anarchists who live in the Bay. We are outraged by the murder of Oscar Grant, and we are pissed at continuing police violence and disregard of communities' health and safety. We're writing this letter to all the people who are going be in the streets the day of Mehserle's verdict."

The latest edition of Revolutionary Communist Party USA read: "The Whole Damn System is Guilty! We demand Justice for Oscar Grant"

Revolution Books writes: "There are plans for a convergence in downtown Oakland at 14th and Broadway at 6 p.m. on the day the verdict is announced. People need to be there and elsewhere to respond politically to the verdict. And the L.A. Coalition for Justice for Oscar Grant is calling on people to gather at the courthouse."

And The Ella Baker Center: "There has been a city-wide call for folks to come out on the evening of the verdict to 14th and Broadway in downtown Oakland for a rally, speak out and open-mic. Members of the Ella Baker Center team will be out in the streets that evening to stand with the community as we call for justice."

We're dealing with radicals here and these people mean what they say. These aren't empty words. When they say revolution, they mean revolution.

And how long did it take the Department of Justice to respond to Mehserle verdict? Just two hours:

"The Justice Department has been closely monitoring the state's investigation and prosecution. The Civil Rights Division, the U.S. Attorney's Office, and the FBI have an open investigation into the fatal shooting and, at the conclusion of the state prosecution, will conduct an independent review of the facts and circumstances to determine whether the evidence warrants federal prosecution."

The president can say whatever he wants, but the actions of this administration — especially when it comes to radicals — speak volumes.

Protests following the fatal police shooting of Walter Wallace Jr quickly devolved into violence, rioting, and looting in Philadelphia, and BlazeTV's Elijah Schaffer was there to document what the mainstream media won't. But while filming the carnage inside a Five Below on Tuesday, Elijah was surrounded and attacked by looters.

Elijah joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to detail his experience and to explain why mainstream media efforts to downplay the violence just show that independent media has never been more important.

"Unfortunately, [the attack] escalated from one person to about a dozen very quickly," Elijah explained. "I'm actually really happy to be alive. Because in that same shopping center, right there, there was a 15-year-old girl who was shot, according to reports. And I heard multiple gunshots throughout the night. Another individual is reported to have heard a gunshot as well, so we try to confirm. I watched people get pummeled beyond belief."

Glenn asked Elijah to respond to mainstream media claims that conservatives are exaggerating the looting and violence in Philadelphia.

"It's so funny to hear people that aren't there try to counter what we're reporting," Elijah replied.

In the final days before the 2020 election, President Donald Trump is gaining among black voters, particularly men, because his record of accomplishments "speaks for itself" and the "façade" that President Trump is a racist "just doesn't ring true," argued sports columnist Jason Whitlock on "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday.

Jason, who recently interviewed the president at the White House for OutKick.com, shared his thoughts on why he believes many black Americans — notably celebrities such as Kanye West, Ice Cube, and 50 Cent — are breaking from the "façade" that President Trump is a "flaming racist."

"I really believe the facts are starting to speak for themselves, and that Donald Trump's record of accomplishments, particularly as it relates to African Americans, speaks for itself," Jason told Glenn. "He actually has a record to stand on, unlike even Barack Obama. When [Obama] was president, I don't think he had much of a record to stand on, in terms of, 'Hey, what did he actually deliver for African Americans?' President Trump has things he can stand on and, you know, beyond that I think black people understand when he starts talking about black unemployment rate. And America's unemployment rate. And then, when you add in for black men, the façade we've been putting on [President Trump] … you know, this whole thing that he's some flaming racist, it just doesn't ring true."

Jason suggested that Trump's fearlessness, unabashed masculinity, and record of keeping his promises resonates with men in the black community. He also weighed in on how media and social media's bias plays a huge role in convincing people to hate President Trump while ignoring Antifa and others on the Left.

"I keep explaining to people, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, they're some of the most secular places on earth. And we've reduced everyone to a tweet, that we disagree with," he added.

Megyn Kelly is not happy about the "disgusting" media coverage of President Donald Trump, specifically pointing to Lesley Stahl's "60 Minutes" interview on CBS Sunday.

On the radio program, Megyn told Glenn Beck the media has become so blinded by the "Trump Derangement Syndrome" that they've lost their own credibility — and now they can't get it back.

"It's disgusting. It's stomach-turning," Megyn said of the media's coverage of the president. "But it's just a continuation of what we've seen over the past couple of years. Their 'Trump Derangement Syndrome' has blinded them to what they're doing to their own credibility. They can't get it back. It's too late. They've already sacrificed it. And now no one is listening to them other than the hard partisans for whom they craft their news."

Megyn also discussed how she would have covered the recent stories about Hunter and Joe Biden's alleged corruption. Watch the video below to catch more of the conversation:
